Morning everyone!

Finally hit 600 mi. last weekend, and the this morning the "OIL" light started blinking on my way to work. I opened up the manual, and it looks like that indicator means it's time for an oil change, which will also be the first post break-in service.

How critical is this indicator? I live about ~45 minutes from home, am I safe to head back and leave the bike until I can take it in this weekend?

Thanks guys.

I parked mine R3 and walked home after mine hit 600 miles. Ouch lol. You can do it little early or a little over just get that old oil out and new filter and Oil in.
FYI: Yamaha service forgot to reset my Oil indicator reset. I Noticed it and did it myself. I Guess that wasn't part of the $250 dollar service I just paid. Doing it myself now. I know there are things to check on a new bike for safety reasons and possible problems ? oil leak's Radiator fluid just to make sure it's all good from the start. I felt it was worth the money for the first check up

I phoned to book mine in at 600m and the dealer said i can't do it for two weeks and to just keep riding it it wont hurt it.It had done 750m by the time it was serviced.

I called my dealership around 580 miles and told them they won't ever touch my motorcycle with their incompetent hands, laughed real hard, then slammed my cellphone hard onto the counter simulating the good old days when you can slam your phone to hang up, then I proceeded to do my own first service. I saved myself a lot of money! But then my phone was broken so I had to buy a new phone, that was about 500 dollars. But when I activated my new phone, I noticed I had a new voice mail, it was my dealership and it was a 30 second long clip of them making sniffling sounds trying to pretend they were crying. I drove over to tell them they aren't fooling anyone with that fake crying business but then I saw shiny new motorcycles and I think we're friends again because we spent a good time talking to each other, them pretending to listen to my needs and me pretending I will buy a new motorcycle.
